Ranchi, Aug. 31: Honing their artistic prowess has brought three children from the capital into the limelight.
Anoushka Roy, Biswadeep Karmakar and Spriha Mishra will represent the state in the east zone competition at the Patna chapter of Bal Bhavan, a pan-Indian institute to encourage creativity in children.
The competition will be held at Kilkari Bal Bhavan on September 7. Winners get a chance to compete for the national Bal Shree awards. They have entered the competition under the creative performance, art and writing categories.
The youngest of the trio, Anoushka, a Class IV student of Surendranath Centenary School, will showcase her Bharatnatyam skills. DAV Public School’s Biswadeep and Sacred Heart Convent’s Spriha, both from Class X, will display their forte in sketches and creative writing, respectively.
National Bal Bhavan invites applications from children between the ages of nine and 16 years to compete for the coveted Bal Shree Award. The different categories are creative performance, art, writing and scientific innovation.
President of Jharkhand State Bal Bhavan Ganesh Reddy said that after qualifying at the regional level, the students would participate in the national-level competition, the date of which is yet to be fixed. “Winners would receive the Bal Shree Samman from President Pratibha Patil,” Reddy added.
